STEYR 8/40, 8/45 SAFETY TWO-LITRE

All-weather saloon.

Continuous refinement of a basic theme, the Porsche engineered Type 30 of 1929. Still with swing axle rear end and semi-elliptics at the front, there were hydraulic brakes, the solid engine had pushrod ohv and a mere eight main bearings, and in the forms sold here the car was attractive but not very inspiring. Early cars had three speeds, but four speeds were in from the Safety model of 1933, which was known in Austria as the Type 430.
